Hl« noDor, the Mayor, then addressed the ratlr- 
lof; ▲IdcrtncD as followe : 

GiJiTLEMEN— It 1? a -mall nambcrof thl-> Council 
who art" to leave their teati* — only one-fourth of tou 
— and ihe separation if but partial, for ihey still re- 
nuiln in the city with a<^ ; and yei it brin?'* a feellne 
of (iadne«8 ovwr to ray farewell, officially, to 
eltfht eeni lemon who have rat here so many nWhts 
with a<>. and have always attended to their dnllea 
Indurtriou-lv and con«clentlou?ly. a? I tKilieve ; 
who leave this Council Chamber, with no rtaln upon 
their oQlclal characer, with the full ri^ht to return 
to their constituent!" and rec>Mve The commenda- 
tion, " well done, eood and taithful servants and 
I do, most reepectJully and heartily bid them flure- 
well. 

Hlfl Honor, the Mayor, then presented his annnal 
message, as follon s : 

To the Board of Aldermen in Common Cooncil as- 

eembUd : 

GENTLtirBN— I did not intend to make any com- 
munication to you to-nieht. for the rca.-on tnat 
nearly all toe members of this Counal have the 
kno-vledge whicu newly elected member* cannot 
expect to have, but 'tis thought by *ome with whom 
I have advised, that a brief etatement in general 
termi of the present condition of the affairs of the 
city, may be of some use. 1. therefore, make such 
etatemecr to you to-ni?ht, on the important eub- 
ject of taxation and expenditure. 

The entire debt of the citv is 14.610,000. Of this 
amount, the Water Works owe f 1,600,000, the prin- 
cipal and interest of which is to be paid trom water 
rents, the balance — over f3,000,000— is the debt 
propel ot the citv. 

I would call TOUT attention to the fact that the 
expenditures of the city are very large. You will 
see by the estimates of the several 'Deparnnents, 
which will De laid before you. that thev are far 
above the requirements oi any previous year. The 
excess is principally tor the increased police force, 
new ename houses, and police s ations, the deep- 
ening of the canal, the uke ttumel, the new tower 
and engines for the Water ^orks. and the enlarge- 
ment of the works for the Wafer Works. 

The laree increase of population and property, 
the hitherto very small police force, and th-? conse- 
quent insecurity of our ci'izens. seem to require all 
tnat the officer- of the different deoarrmeata of the 
City Government have asked. Ii the esdDaate; for 
the'year can be reduced without injury to the put)- 
lic interest-, of course you will reduce them.. But 
I confess that I do not see how tnis lar^e expendi- 
tnre is lo be avoiJed. A tax of trvo per cent tus 
hitherto been the highest rate in the city, and I 
know ikat a lar^e num*Der of this Council hope 
that this rate ^iU ba ihe limit this year. But it 
must be borne in mind toat labor and material are 
high, that the work to be done and the terri- 
tory to be sTiarded are very great. With 
these remembered, consider every point. Do not 
permit one dollar to be expended that can be 
saved; but do nor, by cutting down the aopropria- 
tions, deprive the cirizens of such gectiriry, protec- 
tion and convenience as properly belong to a large, 

grosperous and srowing city. Ihe report ot the 
oard of Public Worss, the Superintendent of 
Schools, Police Commissioners. Fire MarshiL and 
the Supenntenlent of the fiefonn schooL, have 
been, or will soon be, kid before vou. You will 
obtain from tnose reports such information as wnl 
enable you to act unaorstandingly upon all the im- 
portant uiaiters that will be brought before you. 

1 need not tell you that the city rightfully expects 
from evpry member ot tne City Govemm"ent c'ose 
ecruimy. strict integrity, and constant industrv in 
the great interests entru-t^ to tneir care. With 
the as;tirance that you will fully meet these require- 
ments, I commend you to the auties of the year. 
Respecilnlly submitted, 

J. B. Rice, Mayor.

from his Honor, the Mayor : 

Matob's Office. Chicago, May 4th, 1866. 
To the honorable, the Board of Aldermen of the

Ge^-tleiczx : The action of the Council, at the 
last regular meelne. directing a committee to oo- 
tain a painted likeness of the Mavor. to D3 placed 
among his predecessors, in this Chamber, was very 
gratifying to me, and 1 sincerely thank the member 
who proposed it in terms so kind and iiattenng, and 
also the Council, who approved it by their unani- 
mous vote. 

I hope you will make allowance for a feeling that 
I cannot overcome, which impels me to withhold 
my signature to this kind acnon of the Cotmcil. 
I beUeve the usase ha* been, to confer the honor 
upon the Mayor at the end of his official term. One 
year of mine has expired ; and whether the Council

proval of the Mayor's "coarse, when another year

I The following is the report : 

{ OrricB or the Boaed of Public Wokks, ) 

! Chicago, April 30, 1866. f 

I To the Mayor and Aldermen of the cii y of Chicago, 

! in Common Council assembled : 

I The Board of Public Work- respectfully call the 

I attention of the Council to the detailed statement 

' regarding timnels under Chicago River, sub- 

j milled to your honorable body on the 5tb ot last 

i March. 

i Alter more mature deliberation, the Board have 
i come TO the conclusion that the tunnel propo-^ed to 
I be constructed under the mam river, should be lo- 
i cat ed at St ate street. It can be built at Ics ex- 
i pense and inconvenience at that point, and at the 
same time be far more convenient to the pubhc 
! after its ccns ruction. The location of the heaviest 
i busmess m bo'h divisions of the city, and the 
I transportation between the different railway sta- 
] tions, which is becoming greater with each succeed- 
t ing year will be accommodated to a much greater 
' extent Than at any other point. 

Tne Board is leliably informed that property 
holder? m the North and South Divisions have al- 
readv pled.^ed their share of the money necessary 
to construct the tunnel 

The tunnel havine: been petitioned for and stronsr- 
ly urged by many ot our mort respected citizens 
and largest property holders, w ho have followed their 
petitions wi'h libvrral offers of money to aid m its 
constiac<ion, the Board urgently recommend the 
adoption of the ordinance as reported to your hon- 
orable body in March last, adding $25,000 to the 
amount named. Tunneline the river heme an ex- 
periment in our city, the board are of opinion that 
one should first be constructed and uied before 
any ftirtner steps are taken lor other-. 

During tne past year, a tunnel was ordered to 
be built under the south Branch of Cnicaao 
River at Washington stree! The Board prepared 
nians and specihcations, and advertised for bids 
for doing the work according to the plans and 
specifications. Several bids were received, but 
none accepted till after the passage of an orde^- bv 
the Council at i s tneeting of Sep ember 4'h, 1865. 
According to the terms of the aoove named order, 
the Board awarded the contract to J. H. Moore. 
Esq , tor the sum of t\' o hundred thousand dollars 
(1200,000), upon condition that the work should 
commence within a certain time. That time hav- 
ing expired in February last, and the Board having 
fulfilled the requiremunts of the order pa^-ed oy the 
Council, there was nothing left for tne Board to do 
in the premise=. 

Ihe citizens having failed to fami?h the required 
amount for a tunnel at Washington street, and the 
citizens of other parts ot the city having already 
agreed to furnish tneir proportion of the funds re- 
quired, the Board earnestly recommend the con- 
struciion of tne tunnel at State street.

ESTI5IATES. 

The Comptroller pres^enred a communication 
covermg tbe estimates lor the expenditures of the 
city, for" tbe municipal year A. D. 1866. 

Aid. Bisoy moved ibat it be referred ot tbe Com- 
mittee on Finance, and published. Carried. 

Tbe foUowipg is tbe communication : 
To the Ji^yor ana Aldermen oi the city of Chicago 

in Common Council as?em led : 

In compliance with the requirements of section 
tea, chapter five, cf the cily charter, I herewith 
submit a repor* of tbe estimates necessary, as near 
as may be, to defray (he espenses ot tbe city du- 
ring the current tis-cal jear, commenciD;.'- April Ist, 
1866, and eDoinsr April Is-t, 1867 ; also, a statemen' 
ehowiDg the aggregate income of tLe last fiscal 
year, the amount of ihe liabilities outstanding upon 
which in'eres^t is to be paio, and of bonas and cHy 
deb^s payable auring the year. 

It will appear from ihe esiimates submitted that 
an increased appropriation uiil be requirea to carry 
on the city government if the several depariments 
are granted all they ask for. I have not 
attemptea to reduce the amount of any of 
the estimates, but have brought them to- 
gether in a detailed form. I have estimated 
as a Eale basis tne asable property of the cily. 
which will be available at $65,000,000, which at 



two per rent, will yield a revenue of $1,300,000.00, 
and miscellaneous rpceipts, licences, fines &c., f225, 
OUO.OO, from which it will appear that unless a con- 
fiiderable increase is made in the asse-^sed value of 
the real estate and per^onal property of the city, a 
las of mere than two per cent will be required to 
produce a ^ufllcient sum to meet the expenditures 
as e.-timated. 

Hereto I append the several estimate? of the 
Board of Public Works, Board of Police Commis- 
sioners, the Board of Education and the Board of 
Guaraians Oi Reform School as a part ol this report :

To Waller Kimball, E^q 

fo, Illinois : 
ik: The Board of Police herewith ;ui"riniiihe 
eS'timate- 01 the Police, Fire and Heal t) Uepart- 
men s, as TuaUH' by the General SiiDerintendenf 
of Police, Fire Marshal, and Ueahh Officer, res-pec- 
uvely to lie, and b,v us adopied as our esnraafes of 
the f xpen^e of 'hose several deparrments aiiilDg 
the fiscal year, endiaff ISIarch 31 -t. 1867. 

It will he found, apon eA^iniitiaiion that our es- 
tiinaies consideraDh (xceed those of la-tyearin 
each deparlment, yet from da'Jy eraminatious, 
ma-:ehyu?. of the coadilion of the city, aun the 
imperative, thouizh rea-onabJe demands maae upun 
us by the citizen? for more protec ion +o per-on 
and property, and more sauitary taciliues o be fur- 
nisned. v'^e fully bflit-ve our e-timates are reasoij- 
aVilp, at d that an approp'ia'ii n, suflncient to meet 
them fully, will be made by the Common Council. 

In the Police Deparlment we need two bundreo 
patrolmeo, and sn additional number of twenty- 
five policemen, lO Oir tailed from ihe police force 
to the H-alth Dr-partroeuT, as the l^w provides. 

But a- our present Liry Cnarter limit? the num- 
ber of policemen to t^vo' hundred, what extra help 
li? empio\ed m the Health Uppartment, must be 
tmplojed under that, clause of 'he Charter authori- 
zmjr the Boara of Police to employ lor a cK-firite 
time, special pulicenien, in ca-eof f mergency. not. 
pestilence or elecions. Believing tdat air emer- 
gency exi^ts, we have esdmaied for the sum of 
f 15.000. 00. ^^iih which to employ '■pecial policemen, 
as we may need them, piobubly. wholly in the 
He-ill h Denartment. 

Large items lor the construction of nev- build- 
ings ^•'ill be foi Dd in both the Police and Fire De- 
partment estimate?. 

These are, we bilieve,iii each instance, neces'^ary 
ana mdi-pensahle, and should be ordered and built 
early this year. 

You will aiso please to notice that in his esti- 
mates the Fire Marshal does not include any items 
lox the expenses of the Fire Ahirm Telegraph, but 



only submits the estimates of Mr. Chandler, the 
Superintendent of tbe Fire Alarm Telegraph. 

Mr. Chandler's eitimates, beiuK for |11, 000.00. are 
approved oy us. and we ask that a separate appro- 
priation oi 111,000.00 he made for Fire Alarm Tele- 
graph expenses, in addition to the items estimated, 
lor, m the Fire Mar-hal's estimates. 

The exoenses of the Fire Department last year 
exceeded the amount appropriated, and sufiicient 
funds vi'ere temporarily borrowed to carry if through 
ihe year. This maebledness, if lepaid this year, 
trom ihe money appropriated to ihe Fire Depart- 
ment, Should be provided for by makms the appro- 
priation larger than the estimate* of the Fire iViar- 
snal aid Superjnipndent of the Fire Alarm Tele- 
graph, a* they have given them. 

The estimates for tbe He..lt,h Department, are 
largely increa^^ed over these of previous jears. The 
additional expense heing mainly lor Sireel scav- 
engers. 

The Health Officer has e timated for thirty teams. 
With this number, working the year through, we 
think we shall be able to ki ep the densely popula 
led por.iour- of ' he city tree from ashes, dead ani- 
mals and garbage. 

All of whici^ IS respectfully submitted,

REPORTS OF STANDING COMillTl'EES. 

FIXA^'CE. 

The Committee on Finance, to whom had been 
referred the Comptrollers estimates ot the expendi- 
tures of the city for the fiscal yeir 1S6-5, pub- 
lished a report covering an ordinance, makin? ap- 
propriations for the fiscal year irom April Ijt, I8t)6, 
to April Irt, 1867." 

Aid. Knickerbocker moved that tne report and 
Ordinance "be laid over and published. Carried, 
i The report and ordinance are as follows , 

To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chicago 
I m Common Couiicil assembled : 

Your Committee on Finance, to whom was refer- 
red the annual estimates ot the City Comptroller 
for the fiscal year from April l5% 1863, to April let, 
I 18b7, having had the same under advisement, beg 
; leave respectfully to report the ordinance appended 
' hereto, making "appropriations lor the year eadmg 
, April 1st, 1867,' and recommend its passase. 
I lour committee have carefully considered the 
estimates, and with lew exceptions landjchanee*, 
have reported the sums askei tor the objects there- 
in specified, assuming as a basis for the appropria- 

■ tions a valuation of all real aud personal property 
I of the city of §90,000,000.00, ac a tax of twenty 
' mills, ana estimated miscellaneous receipts of S203, 

OOO.OO. 

! The larse increase of valua^^ion over 1864. which 
' was about i47,000, 000.00, and 1865,| which was abjut 

■ $63,000,00(>.00, will not tail to attract your attention, 
and some may, ^viihout reflection, taink ihe valua- 

I rion mnch too hi?h. This conclusion w e are free to 
I admit would be a correc one, when compared with 
, the assessed value of property in our ^itate for state 



June 4,]i 



[1865 



and County taxe?; but when compared with the cash 
value of all the property in our city, we 
taink few, if any, will say that it is one-third of what 
it would sell for. The question of tasation is one 
that Has occupied the attention of ail enlightened 
nations and States tor inany {reneratxoos, and to 
Those who have made it the nearest equal and least 
burdensome, nave flocked the largest, most indus- 
triou?, loyal and prosperous populations. Unequal 
taxation lends to discord, and should be guarded 
against by such legislation as would eecuie to all 
tax payer.* faircees and equality. ITiis cannot be 
aone m our fetate, under our present system of ae- 
f esement, for by it the valuation of all the property 
in the state i!^ set dosvn after the year 1858, at |407,- 
477,367.00, which, in the opinion of your committee, 
i= not much, if any, over the value of Cook County 
ftlone ; and if Cook County is worth §400,000,000.00, 
th« whole State cannot be estimated at less than 
13,000,000,000,00, and instead of a State and county 
tax of about eevenf een mills on the dollar ot valua- 
tion, we should have a tax of less than two and one- 
half mills. The same principle applied to ChicaffO 
on a valuation of $360,000,000.00, would make our 
tax only five mills instead of twenty mills, 
as at present. Is it not; time, then, that the 
gystem of astessmeat should be remodeled so as to 
equalize the taxes, and thus give the Stare and our 
city the credit that sucn a change would entitle 
tnem to ? We therefore most earnestly urge noon 
the attention of the Council that step*; be taken to 
bring this subject betore the Legielamr a- i'.-. ucxt 
eession. 

A few of the deductions and allswanoes made by 
your committee, with our reasons for the Fame, are 
as follows, to wit : The amoimt of $30,000.00 lor 
the construction of a pivot bridge at Twelfth street, 
your committee have stricken out, for the reason, 
that the dock lines at that point have not yet been 
e-tabiished, and not desiring another Van Buren 
f treet controversy, we thought it advisable to strike 
this item out, and when the dock lines are estab- 
lished, the bridge can be built upon temporary loan, 
if necessary, as in the case of Clark street bridse. 

The estimate of |15,000.00 as the city's proportion 
for a new bridge at Eighteenth street, we have 
stricken out, believing that the old one \nth ordi- 
nary repairs will answer lor another year. The 
estimate of $8,800.00 for tlie purchase of a lot and 
the erection toereon of an ename house for the steam 
fire en tiine Enterprise, on the Archer road, we have 
stricken out, for the reason that the building now 
oceopied or some other near by, can be had 
for the present year, and as the estimates called 
lor four new Fire and Police Stations, at an outlay 
of $64,400.08, your committee felt compelled to 
strike out the item of $8,800.00 as above. 

We have stricken out the two items, $4,171.00 
and $10,410.00, the first for a new Engine House, 
corner Oak and Wolcott streets, and ttie second lor 
bou?e and lot at Clybourn's, near the Rolling Mills, 
for the reason that, with the present facihties of 
the Fire Department, the two last named districts 
can be suppUed, for this year at least, and we would 
recommend that the nand engine now at Carville, 
"be transferred to the Rollins Mill distri«t, so soon 
asja new house is erected at Carville, ana an engine 
purchased for the same. 

The item of $10,000.00, estimated for dredging 
the Oeden Slip, and the repairs of Butler and Mc- 
Gregor streets, we have reduced to $3,000 00, which 
we deem sufBcient to repair the streets in question, 
and believing the charge for dredging the slip not 
to be a valid one against the city. 

The two items amounting to $45,000.00, estimated 
for special police service, we have have reduced to 
$30,000 00; two months of the present fiscal year 
having already passed, we deemed the last named 
Eum sufficient for this branch of the service. 

We have stricken out $8,500.00, the amount esti- 
mated fbr the erection ot a new house for elrls at, 
the Reform School, there being one already erected 
and but just finished, with only a small number ot 
inmates, and for the further reason that the land up- 
on which It 18 proposed to erect the bnildmg is not 
owned by the city ; and your committee believe 
that improvements of a permanent character tor 
this department should be delayed, as far m practi- 



cable, until the city has acquiredby purchase in fee 
simple the ground upon which to place such im- 
provements. 

The ground occupied by the city for the Reform 
School, comprises about twenty-seven acres, ana 
runs to the lake, which makes it a very desirable 
location for the puipose it is now used for. As 
property in that vicinity is now selling it v.;ould 
probably bring from $25,000 to $30,000, and as it 
has so many improvements upon it of a oermsnent 
character, which have become a necessity for the 
city, and we might add that they are insufficient for 
The wants of the school ; we would recommend that 
the ground be purchased from the county before 
any more buildings are erected thereon. The coun- 
ty, to whom this ground belongs, is now occapyins 
the hoBpital, a building belonging to the city, 
which, with tbe lots thereto belonsring, cost the city 
some $70,000. We do not doubt that an cx- 
cnange could be made with the county, if the proper 
steps be taken. We therefore commend the 
question to the early attention of the Council, ana 
trust that such action will be taken as shall give the 
city the full ownership of the Reform School, and 
the county the fee-simple of the hospital. 

The additions made to the estimates are few : we 
have added $300.00 each to the salaries of the Po- 
lice Justices, deeming $1,800.00 per annum little 
enough for the services as now required and per- 
forra'^'1, the entire time of the justices being em- 
pkyed lo transact the business ; we have added 
$1,000.00 for the repairs of tne Police Court Room ; 
we have added $1,400.00 to the pay of the three As- 
sessors, believmg that the salaries as recommended 
by us are no more than a fair compensation for a 
faithful and thorough pertormance of th<?ir duf ies 
as such asseseors ; we have added $5,000.00 for the 
impiovemimt of Lake Park, this amount being but 
barely sufiacient to make the surveys and a begin- 
ning toward this great and much needed improve- 
ment. 

Yotir committee have allowed $123 000.00 for 
street labor, exclusive of the amount already ex- 
pended. This sum, when compared with the 
amount appropriated for the same object in previ- 
ous years, may appear extraordmanly large, and, 
some may say, larger than necessary; but your 
committee, deeming' it essential that the streets of 
this great and growing city be kept in clean and 
healthy condition, have acted accordingly. It must 
be borne in mmd, too, that our city is constantly 
increasm?, and that tbe numbtr of miles of streets 
to be cleaned and kept in order has nearly dont»led 
In the last ten years ; this and the complaints of tbe 
past year of the filthy condition of our streets, the 
responsibility of which was charsed directly lo the 
Council, because of their refusal to appropriate a 
greater stim for that object, has induced your com- 
mittee to recommend the fioll amount asked for by 
the Beard. The charier gives the Board of Public 
Works the full control of the street", and to them 
is committed the responsibility of their repair and 
cleanly condition. Had they the power by the 
charter of letting out annually by contract the 
cleaning of the streets, we do not hesitate in say- 
ing that it would result in a saving to the city of 
thousands of dollars every year ; and we earnestly 
recommend that the Council snail obtain from the 
Legislature, at its next session, eucQ additional 
power to the charter as will authorize the Board of 
Public Works to let by yearly contract the cleaning 
of all Improved streets. 

We have also allowed $71,890.00, the amount, 
with slierht deductions, asked tor the Health De- 
partment. Thi8 amount includes $25,000.00 appro- 
priated last fall, and which sum was obtained by 
temporary loan, and is now added to tiie appropria- 
tion bill as required by the charter. 

Other changes in the estimates have been made 
by your committee, but of such miaor importance 
that we have deemed it unnecessary to name them 
in detail in this report. 

Respectfully submitted.

Ai^. Holden presented a communication from the 
Board of Pablic Works in relation to an additional 
appropriation for dredefioff the river, and moved 
that it be laid over and publisned. Carried. 

The .("ollo'vinw is the communication : 

Aid. Holden, Chairman Finance Committee, Chi- 
cago, llJ.: 

Dear Sib: The estimate of the Board tor the 
expenses for thi< year made no provision for dreaGr- 
in£T at the mouth of the harbor. The examinations 
marte previous to tDe date of the estimate did cot 
snow that any dredging wouid be needed. 

The Board have, however, within a few days 
cau.<-:ed soundings to be made, and a small 
bar appears to be forminff from the end of 
the pier, so that there is not now eulM- 
cient water within one hundred feet from ihe pier. 
A« the bar is likely to increase, so that it may spr- 
iou>ly obstruct the entrance to the harbor, the 
Board do not think that it will be safe to make no 
provisions for dredging it out.

The Clerk read the call for the meetine, which, 
on motion of Aid Clark, was placed on file. 

Aid. carttrof the Joint Committee on Sireeie 
and Alleys of ihe south. North and West Divisions, 
to whom had been relerrtd a communication from 
Aid. Moore in relaticn To a tucne 1 under the south 
hrancti of the Chicago River ai Wa^bington street, 
and an ordinance connected with said commcnica- 
rion, submitted a leport recommending the passage 
of The ordinance. 

Aid. b hack lord moved that the report be laid 
over and nuDlisbed. 

Aid Wicker oflered a substitute, and asked that 
ii be read. 

The Cbair decided the offer of a substitute to be 
out of order. 

Aid. Kniceerhocker moved to concur in the re- 
port aro pal^= the ordinance. 

Atier deba'e on the questicn whether the pub- 
lication ot ihe report mcessitated the publication 
of The ordinance as par^ and parcel thereof, said 
ordinance bavins aJready t^-etn puDhehed in the 
oflacial repurl of the Council proceedings of May

The report of the Joint Committee, ae ordered 



to he laid over and published, under the motion of 
Aid. shackford is as toUowe : 

To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chicago, 
in Common council assembled : 
Your Joint Committee on Streets and Alleys in 
the three divi?iona of the city, to whom was refer- 
red the communication of Alderman Knickerbocker 
concerning the building of a tunnel at Franklin 
street, as well a= the subject matier of tunnels m 
get eral, ha vine had the same under advisement, 
beg leave to submit the foliowiog report : 

Some months tince, and before the opening of 
navigation ontne nver, and afier tne subject ol 
tunnels had been under discufsion for more than 
two jearj at different and gtsied time?, all the va- 
rious plans and propojiiions for a tunnel ^ere laid 
aside, to re?t. a* many of us bad supposed, for at 
least a year to come. In this, however, we were 
disappointed. Sitice the commencement of busi- 
ness m the month of May, ihe often recurnne and 
lorg continued mterruotionj to business and travel 
in consequence of the bridge? being open so large 
a portion of the time, has caused a new fueling in 
the minds of tbe business por'ion of the city upon 
this question, greater ihanvever before, and they 
have renewed their demands lor a lunnei, and as 
we have reason to believe, insist that the experi- 
ment shall be iried. 

Tbe Council have heretofore exhibited a com- 
mendable oegree of caution upon this important 
question, perplexing as it is in many resptcis on 
account ot tbe uncer'ain-y of The experiment, tbe 
laree amount of money it will cost, and The large 
and increasing demands upon the finances of the 
city, and the lurtber reason that at the point where 
ihey first decided to make the experiment, tbe 
people have entirely failed to make the subscrip- 
tion necessary to meei their share ol the expense 
as was exoecied. 

On this account a portion of your committee 
were m favor of transferring the proposed locatioa 
to some other pom', and where tne citizens baa 
pledged a large amount of monev to a;d m its con- 
puucticn. Tbi« propo-ition, fair at^d jus: as it ap- 
pears to some of n?. for local or other rea'ons. did 
not appear lo meet vvitb tbe favor of the majority 
of Ihe committee, or of the Council. 

There is now lefi no other al'ema ive, if a tunnel 
isjio be buili, but to take the en'ire expense out of 
the general fund and construct ii at Wa;hington 
street. Tbe tax payers of ihe city are, and ever 
should be, watchiul of thi^^ fund atd i' henever or 
'.^herevpr it is u»ed or appropriated, their intererts 
shoula be con-ul'ed. For this reason, as-^^ellaa 
crihers that might be mentioned, the proposed run- 
nel shoula be located nhere tbe business interests 
of the community cemand it; without resarfi to 
local or other coni-iQera'ion=. Therefore, your com- 
mittee couid not recommend the constraciion of a

TUNNEL UNDEB THE EIVBK. 

Aid. Moore movea that the Vijte by which, on the 
27th of June, an ordinance for thf? construction of a 
tunnel under the river at Washmgion street was 
pa«eed, be reconsidered. Carried. 

Ala. Carter moved that the report of the Joint 
Committee on Streets and Alleys of the South, 
North and West Divisions, on the tunnel question, 
and the ordinance connected therewith, be laid over 
and published. Carried. 

The report and ordinance are as follow : 
To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chicago 

in Common Council assembled : 



Your Joint Committee on Streets and Alleys in 
the 'hree divisions of the city, to whom was refer- 
red the communication of Iderman Knickt rbocker 
concerpiog the building of a tunnel at Franklin 
street,^ af well as the f ubjecr ma'ter of tunnels in 
general, having had the same under advieement, 
beg leave to submit the following report: 

Some montns t mce, and before the opening of 
navigation on the river, and after the subject of 
tunnels nad been undf r discussion for more than 
two yt ars at aiff^rent and stated timeS. all the va- 
rious plans ana prorositions for a tnunel were laid 
a^ide, to rest, as many ot us had eunposed, for at 
lea'rt a year to come. In thl-, however, we were 
disappointed Since the commencement of busi- 
ness m the month of May, the often recurring and 
long continued interruptions to business and travel 
in consequence of the Drids'es bein? onen so large 
a portion of the titne, has caused a new feshng in 
the minds of the bufiness pordon of the city upon 
this que«Tion greater than ever tiefore, and they 
have renewed their demands for a tunnel, and as 
wena'e rea«on to believe, msist that the experi- 
ment shall be tried. 

The Council have heretofore exhibited a com- 
mendable oegree of caution upon this important 
question, perulexing as it If in many re«pect« on 
account of ihe uncertainty of the experiment, the 
large amount of money it will cost, and the laree 
and mcrea-ing demands upon the finances of the 
city, and the further reason that at the point where 
they first decided to make the experiment, the 
people have entirely failed to make the subscrip- 
tion necessary to meet their share of the expense 
as was expected. 

On this account a portion of your committee 
were in favor of transferring the proposed location 
to some other point, and where the citizens had 
pleoged a large amount of motey to aid in its con- 
struction. This proposi'ion, fair and just a^ it ap- 
pears to some of us, lor local or ctuer reasons, did 
not appear tomeetwiih the lavor of the majority 
of the comtniitee, or of the Council. 

Thpre i? no A' left no other alternative, if a tunnel 
is to be built, hut to take the entire expense out of 
the general fund and construct it at Washinerton 
street. The tax payers of the city are, and ever 
should be, watchtul of ihis fund and whenever or 
wherever it is used or appropriated, their interests 
should be consulted. For this reason, as well as 
others that m'ght be mentioned, the propo?ed tun- 
nel should be located where the business interejits 
of the community demand it; without regard to 
local or other considerations, fherelore, your com- 
mittee could not recommend the construction of a 
tunnel at Franklin street, ae contemplated in the 
communication of Aid. Knickerbocker. 

Believing, however, that the people will not rest

thoie inierestcd iu the property, einoraced in y&ia

the arcument of the principal oppoeerrf of tbe ex- 
i-tmer ordinance are founded upon the ground that 
there stiould he no fire limits established within 
1 he city, which argument vour committee believe, 
to hs wrong. Apart from the many plain argnmenta 
that may be urged in support of a proper " Fixa, 
Limits Ordinance." we have tbe evidence that the/t 
hive exigied as long an city charters themselves^ 
which i* as tood proof of their advantage as any 
special argument thai we can ur^e, for it evideLt 
tnat such an ordinance, if nol beneficial to the city 
at l«rge, and coEsequtmiy 10 the individual rest-, 
dents, would have bt'en repealed long before the 
city of Chicago had an exi:-tence ; on tne contrary 
the longer they bave existed the more they have 
been appreciated and the more unauimity evinced 
in supporting and extending the same. Your com- 
mittee belisve ihis quektion to be as much of pub- 
lic impor'ance as private interest, and that every 
tax peyer has a rignt to a voice as regards where 
The Doundaries of the fire limitn ehall be estab- 
lithed, consequently we cannot report in 
favor of the resolutions passed by 
a called meeting of those livitig within the 

E resent boundaries of the fire limits in the North 
>ivision, for if two thirds ot the property owners 
of each block m the city sbould have the privilege 
of electing whether the fiie limit ordinance should 
extend over them, it is plain tnat great confusion 
would ariic out of such legislation. Tom* com- 
mittee, after having carefully examined the boun- 
daries of the present ^re limits, are ot the opinion 
that the Council should not. modify or reoeal any 
portion of said ordinance, and would therelore re- 
commend that the prayer of the Detitioners. for the 
modification or repeal of the same, be not 
granted. 

All of which is rsspectfuUy submitted.

fied sucb opposiiion in pe'Uions to the Common 
Council, and also by reso.uiions which were adopt-

The preamble and resolution, as passed, are as 
follows : 

Whereas, Much trouble and damase is caused 
upon our newly improved streets, in consequence 
of the larjje amount of excavation that is done 
upon them for the purpose of putting in pipes 
and sewers, even up to the time that the pave- 
ment is laid, in many instances ; so that there is 
not sufficient time for the filling to get sufficiently 
solid, so as to prevent the settling of the pave- 
ment, causing many depressions and irregulari- 
ties in the street, when finished, and 

Whereas, Michigan avenue has been ordered 
paved from Twelfth to Twenty -second street, and 
will probably be commenced early in the spring, 
the most difficult season of the year to put in sew- 
ers in that locality ; therefore.

to be put in, if possible, this fall, and have the

coinmiUee have oxnnilned the premises or the 
Messrs. Doollttlo & OIcoll^ and And tlie Btale- 
menta set forth In their petition to bo in the main 
correct. We find that tuey occupy lots 'i and 4, 
block 6S, S. S. Addition to Chicago, for dry-dock 
purpose;*, the same being leased from the city by 
ihem. We also And that they have paid their af- 
seasment for improviufr Wella street with Nichol- 
son pavement, eomc $2,000 and upwards, when 
the street in question does them little or no good, 
tlielr business being wholly done uoon the liver 
front. We also find that the river Is to be wid- 
ened at this point, and this improvement will 
probably be ordered next year, which improve- 
ment will cost petitioners not far from ^,Oun, as, 
by the terms of their lease, all improvements of 
Ihis nature have to bo borne by them. 

Your committee believes the land to be worth 
all the appraisers appraised it at— to-wit, $50,000. 
They al?o believe that petitioners are entitled to 
Eome consideration at our hands for reasons above 

f^iven, and would recommend that the Comptrol- 
er be authorized to deduct the sum of $250 per 
quarter from the amount epecified in their lease,

ItEPOKT or COlinHTTEE. 

To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chicago, 

in Common Council assembled: 
Your Committee on Wharves and Public Groun<^s, 
to whom was referred a commnnirotioTi I'- ora iLe 
Committee on Public E '1' e. u iclJlion to 
purchasing the block be uec-n Yan Buren and 
Jackson, Sherman and GrisAvold streets, for the 
purpose of erecting a City Hall thereon, having 
bad the same imder advisement, beg leave to re- 
port that a majority of the Committee on Wharves 
and Public Grounds are upon the Committee on 
Public Buildings, and we have already, in the 
above report, given our opinion that the purchase 
of the block in question for the use of the city 
should be made. We see no reason to change our 
opinion now, as recent events have tended to con- 
firm us in our first impression. It is now pretty 
certa'n that no proper arraneement ran be made 
by the city with the county to eniaree the Conrt 
Souse and occupy the building jointly. The city 
needs and must soon have better accommodations 
for its oflBcers and courts. It wijl be required soon 
to build a building commensurate with our in- 
creasing population and business. We would, 
therefore recommend that the Council take action 
as soon as possible in this matter and purchase as 
mu'*.h of said block as may be required for the use 
of a City Hall. EespccLfully submitted, 

Ed. Bixby, 
W. H. Caeter,

SELECT OOITMITTEES. 

Aid. Wicker, of Iho select conimitlec appointed 
to confer \vilh the bclect committee of the Board 
of SuporvisorB, in relation to increased accommo- 
dation for ttie city and connty oillcera in the 
Conri IJouHc, Hubmitted a report thereon 

Aid. Shackford moved that the report be laid 
over and published. 

The motion prevailed. 

The report is as follows: 
To tlie IJonorable Mayor and Common Council of 

the City of Chica^:o, in Council assembled : 

Gcnilcmen :— The undersigned, your special 
committee, who were appointed to confer with 
the lioard of Supervisors through their special 
committee, lor the purpose of a joint plan lor the 
improvement of the Court House, so as to 2:ive 
better accommodation lor the city and country 
oflicevs, submit the following as their reoort : 

The committee from the two Boards had two 
meetings soon after the appointment of the un- 
dersigned, which resulted in a plan for the im- 
provement of the Court House, that would have 
given sufficient room for the two organizations 
for at least ten years to come. The committee 
from the Board of Supervisors were so well 
pleased with the plan of Improvement that they 
called their Board together m extra session, to 
consider, with the hope that it might by them be 
adopted. 

The Board met, but only to receive and refer 
the report and plan of the committee to be acted 
upon at the regular meeting of the Board in Sep- 
tember. 

At the meeting of the Board in September, the 
plan of the joint committee was discussed, and 
finally tabled, which of course settles the ques- 
tion of joint improvement for the present. 

Your committee, however, believing that the 
real object of their appointment was to devise 
and propose some plan of improvement by which 
the several departments of the city government 
could be accommodated with rooms adequate to 
their wants, would recommend that all the offices 
connected with the Board of Public Works be re- 
moved to North Market Hall, in which rooms 
might at a small cost be fitted up that would be 
ample for their complete accommodation. Such 
a change -would be attended with Bome inconveni- 
ence to the Boi rd in communicating v ith the other 
city officers, but would be infinitely better for 
the Boari than ro continue where thoy are. 

The vacation of the rooms now occupied by the I 
Board would give the Mayor, City Clerk and ■ 
Comptroller all the room they each require, as ; 
well as the Commissioners of the Police Depart- 
ment ample quarters-in the Court House, which is I 
what they desire. 

So far as the expense of these changes are con- 
cerned, we might almost say that it will be no- 
thing, for (he lease of the building now occupied 
by the Police Commissioners could be sold for 
nearly, if not quite, sufficient to pay the cost of 
refitting the rooms proposed to be used in this 
change. 

Respectfully suhmitted.

the fact that Aid. O'Sullivan is dead. 11 is only 
two days since he sat in that chair, attending to 
the duties of his olhce, as ne ever di i, faitbiuiiy. 
I believe he was never absent from the uiueiiugs

could do to all interested in the i»roceeuing8 of

membej- of this Council does, i caiu-d you here 
to-night in order that you may take siicb action as 
you shall deem proper to testify your respect for 
him 

Aid. Clark oUered the following resolutions : 

PREAMBLE AND llESOLUTIONS ON THE DEATH OF 
ALD. J. J. O'SULLIVAN. 

Wheeeas, The Lord of life and death hath, in 



the midst of his usefulness in this Council and in 
this community, iaken from us otir friend and col- 
league, J. J. O'Sullivan; and 

WHEREAS, In his death we have lost one who 
vas dear to us as a personal friend, and a faithful 
counsellor in his ofhcial capacity as an Alderman 
of this city, one whom we at ill times ho^iored for 
his manline-s, for his genial disposition, and for 
his official integrity ; therefore, 

hesolvedy That while we mourn his untimely 
death, we will emulate his virtues, and take to 
ourselves the consolation that his^ood deeds re- 
main for otir example, in all our offi^cial and Xicr- 
sonal relations. 

Resolved^ That this Council will attend the fu- 
neral of our deceased colleague, in a body, as a 
mark of respect to his memory. 

Ecsolvea^ That a copy of these resolutions be 
presented to the family of the deceased. 

Hesolv^d^ That these resolutions bespread upon 
the records of the Common Council of the city of 
Chicago. 

Aid Oark.— I will move the adopiion of the 
preamble and resolutions. I must say, sir, that I 
feel very much the solemnity of the occasion that 
compels me to ask this Council to adopt them. I 
have known my friend ana colleague for a long 
time. 1 have known him to be all that those res- 
olutions sta e ; and while there may be otliers in 
ti'is Council who knew him better than 1 did, 
who were more conversant with his value, 
and who associated more with him in 
the private walks of life ; yet there are 
none here who realize more tban I do his loss as 
a friend When ilook at his vacant chair here, 
aud realize that he is dead, and that to-morrow 
we shall be called upon to deposit his remams in 
the cold ground or the silent vaults of death, I 
feel that the bereavement to us a Common Coun- 
cil, as well as to the community in which he 
lived, is almost irreparaljle. I do not 
utter these words as a mere matter of form — I 
a-sure you that 1 feel what I say. I shall never 
looK upon that vacant chair on my ri^ht, 
whoever may fill it, without feeling that I have 
lost a dear iViend, a good counseller, a brother 
man ; ever willing and ever anxious 
to aid those in distress, and to help those 
whorequiied assistance, Avhether in the way of 
advice or pecuniarily. I feel that I can say noth- 
ing more on this subject at this lime. 1 feel it as 
a personal lo-s, aud 1 have no doubt the gentle- 
men here feel it as a personal loss, and as an 
official loss also. 

Aid. Woodard. I desire to express my most 
hearty e'ldoisement of the resolutions justoiTer- 
ed, and to bear my testimony lo the 
many excellent traits of character of our departed 
friend. Those elements which entei into and con- 
stitute that wh'ch binds society together, aud 
link us in one common brotherhoo l, are not the 
result of cold and dispassionate reasoning ; 
but they are the grouth of those 
generous impulses, implanted by the Creator of 
its ail, in the human heart, vivified and 
strengthen L^d by thepriuciples and truths of Chris- 
i tianity. Our friend was a frank, open, generous- 
hearted, noble man. As a member of ttiis v.oun- 
cillie was obliging and generous. He was ever the 
advocate, in this Council and out of it, of the de- 
mands of the poor and the unfortunate. He did, 
as fcas been remarked, 1 believe, to the best of his 
ai)i]ity, represent J he interests of his Ward. We 
allmou:nhj*s loss; and we are aJmonished, sir, 
as our friends fall around us, that we too, a.-e soou 
to be called lo' 'that bourne from which no travel- 
^ ler reiurnK." The lesson which it inculcates is 
one Ol duty to ourselves and lo our rac. aiay it 
I so impress us that we shall live good friends in 
' the paths of progressitm and improvement, so 
\ that it could be truly said of us thai the world is 
better aud purer for our labors. 

Ala Holdcn. yince I took my seat here to- 
night it has stiiick me forcibly tlial Alderman 
O'fcjuUivan sat in that chair a few nights since, 
fheu it was, I think, that he complained of being 
ill, and near miunight he remarked that he was 
takuag medicine ; but little did I, or any of as*

Ward of the diaft. He woiked, himtself, laltbfully. 
I have ol'let) thought of the de-'p Intercut he man- 
ifested, and the active part he took in heliiinir the 
poor men ot the Sixte enth Ward to nelp tbcm- 
Bclves and become clear of the draft 

t^ince then ir has been my lot to mf-ct him on 
several occasions when he waH tryinjr to help 
the needy ones ; but Aid. Clark has already testi- 
fied to that. I rejrret him, eir, exccedinfrly, 
in fact, the word '"i-eiriet" does not half tell the 
fceliiijjs ot' my heart at the present lime. That 
chair is vacant, never again to be filled by the 
waim-hcaried and genial Alderman O'Snllivan. 

Aid. U'Wolf— I cannot withhold saying a few 
words with regaid lo our deceased iriend and as- 
eociare. I have known him here perhaps ten veare. 
Dnnng all tnat time he nas remained a 
cons^isienl character— perhaps eccentric in some 
particulars— but with ail the sympathies and 
leelings of a generous and noble natnie. 
I do not know an instance in his conduct 
where his sympathies and feelings were not upon 
the side of 'those who were weat and oppressed. 
In politics, it is true, he did t)clong to a party 
to which many of us did not belong ; and we have 
claimed for ourselves, perhaps, to be the advo- 
cates of the rights of all men ; but Alderman 
O'Sullivan, whatever his part^ attachments might 
be, never lost sigh: of the universal brotherhood 
of man. This noble traif in his character cer- 
tainly endeared him to all of ns. We shall cher- 
ish his memory wich affection, and we shall long 
mcnra over our sad bereavement. I, for one, not 
only lament his nnrimely end, but 3lso the sad 
ravages of the disease that has taken him away 
from us. We shall miss him from this Council; 
we shall diop a tear to his memory, but shall 
never forget him. 

Aid. Bisby— It was with a sad heart that I came 
here. 2s'ot as intimately acquainted with Al- 
derman O'Snllivan as some are, yet I have known 
him for several years. I have admired his noble 
and generous qualities ; I have admired his 
whole-souledness ; I have admired his advocacy, 
in the Council, of the rights of the poor and hum- 
ble and oppressed. I have loved and admired his 
integrity in advocating what he thought 
nghl and just. In his opposition he was 
earnest and honest. He has gone! His virtues 
we may emulate and imitate. The city has lost 
an able friend in its Council ; we have lost a 
brother. 1 bear my huiuble testimony to the 
fitness of the resolutions oiiered by his colleague. 

Let us be admonished by this bereavement that 
time is short. We can hardly realize, as we look 
back a lew days, that death has been so busy 
among us. Men pass away as the dew of the 
morning.'" Let us, in our official capacity, re- 
member that what we do must be done quickly. 
Let ns imitate the virtues of our departed brothep, 
and do what we can for the welfare of onr fellow- 
men, remembering that if we do this, in due 
timo, beyond the scenes of life, beyond the nver 
of death we shall reap our reward. 

Aid. Wicker— To-day one has been taken from 
our midst, for the first time, I believe, "wiihin two 
years. The bereavement comes upon us with all 
the greater force in consequence of its unfrequent 
oceurrence. We are called together to-night to 
mourn the loss of Aid. O'Sullivan. I have l^nown 
biTn for perhaps eisht or ten years. It has been 
remarked that he differed from some of us in po- 
litical opinions, but it cannot be said of him that 
he has not been a firm friend of his country. 
Djiring the progress of the rebellion and the re- 
crniting for our armies, I imagine there were none 
more industxiotis than he ; none that made greater 



Racriflccfl according to hia means; and I imagine 
there are none who pucceedod beti'-r in their ef- 
forti< than .Mderman O'Sulllvun. lie has gone 1 
Ho wari one of uh t He ban left uh lor ever f But 
we nniHi not lorgi't that uc ureal) in the keeping 
of Him who holdrt un in the hollow of IHh haiid^ 
and when one fallH, ll Is at the bidd ng of ilirn who 
crrnlcd lie, and to whOHe flat we bhoulduU how. I 
fully endorne the nenumenta expreuHcd in the re- 
HOlulioMH oiTereil by Aid. Clark. 

Aid. Car er— .My ac(i uainlanco with Aid. O'Sul- 
livan waH hhort ; j)robaDly ehortcr than that of any 
other member or the Council. 11 waw, however, 
long enough for rae to know that he posfseHsed 
maiiy good qufllitiea both of head and heart. I 
firht met him during lho.se dark houra in onr 
country's hiKtory when the ca'l waH made by /'resi- 
dent Lincoln for " five hund.-ed iboueand more." 
It wa.s our fortune to meet on i-everal occa.^-ions, 
to de^ihC the be.si ineitiodH of keejdmr the young 
men of our city from the draft. Aldtrrman O'.-nl- 
livan, like a true patriot, which 1 believe he was, 
(unlike many witn wh.orn he held pariy relations », 
came forward and did everything in his power. 
1 met him on many occafions during that time, 
and I do not know a man 1 met who maB'fe>ted a 
deeper interest than he did in the eilbrt*. to fill np 
our quota. I ttiink il wa.s mainly owing lo hid 
eflorts that the SLsteenth Ward was able to give 
so^ood a record as it did at that lime. 

>Iy next relations with him were at the time that 
he came into tliis Council. Since then our rela- 
tions have been of the most friendly character, 
and 1 am pleased to know that in the last speech 
he made in this Council, he took occasion to pay 
a committee of which I am a member, no unmean- 
ing compliment. We parted at a Jate hour 
yesterday morning, when, as I supposed, he was 
in his usual health. Scarcely two days have 
passed, and he has left us. never lo return. We 
are nowhere to pay a solemn tribute to his mor- 
tal remains. The lesson should not be lost upon 
us. We are often reminded of the uncertainty of 
life, and on this occasion we should be; admon- 
ished of our duty in all the various avocations of 
lite, and so live that when otu- time comes, we 
may not be fotmd unprepared. 

Aid. Knickerbocker— I cannot let this oppor- 
tunity pass without adding my feehle endorse- 
ment to" the resolutions now before the Council. 
I first became acquamted with Alderman O Sul- 
livan some time in the year 1S61, while I was en- 
gaged in studying my protession in this city. 
From the middle of 18'32, at very brief 
intervals, all the while, until a few weeks 
ago, I have often met him at the bar 
and in the Courts. In his practice of 
law, it was sufficient for me if he _gave his word, 
as he has many times done ; and I odd my testi- 
mony that wherever and '.whenever he has pledged 
me his word I have found it always kept faithftilly. 

I remember the shudder which came over me 
this morning. Early in the morning I was met oy 
one of his friends — a messenger — on his way to the 
office of your Honor, and wlien the sound broke 
upon my ear that Alderman O'Sullivan was dead, 
I could hardly realize that such was the fact. 
Less than forty-eight nours ago we heard his voice 
and saw his presence in this Council. His voice, 
will be heard and his presence seen here no more. 

In the discharge of his official duties, so far as 
I have been connected with him, he was always 
on the side of the oppressed and the poor. 1 have 
met liim, socially, a great number of times during 
my acquaintance with him. He always had a 
cheerful word for his acquaintances, and he al- 
ways met them with a genial smile ; and I think 
there was no man but could say that he fell better 
for having been accosted by, and having a fe"\V 
woras with, our deceased brother. 

I fully endorse the letter and spirit of the reso- 
lutions. I feel, too, that this is a lesson that 
ought not to be lost upon us. I have sat in this 
Council, now, for nearly eighteen months, and 
during that time we have never been called upon 
on an occasion like the present. It is the first 
time, during that period, that we have met to per- 
form this sad office for a deceased brother. I trust 



Oct. 10,]

l^at it may be a longtime before we are called to- 
gether again for a similar object. But the disease 
ot which ^^he died is rife in our city : we know 
not how soon the occasion may again recur : 
perhaps, ere a week has passed, we may be called 
upon to perform the same sad office for another of 
our numoer. I trust we may be impressed by the 
solemnity of the thought, and that we may take 
warning, and be so prepared that when death 
stall come to ns— be it sooner or later — we may be 
found ready to meet the awful flat. 

Aid. Raflerty— Pi'obably there is no one here to- 
night who more deeply feels the loss we have suf- 
fered than I do. I believe I have known Alderman 
O'Sullivan some thirteen years. I have known 
him ever since he was a student. He was a 
man of such sterling integrity and honesty of pur- 
pose that nothing could change him. When the 
names of the members were being called to-night 
by the Clerk, at the end of the list the name of 
Alderman O'Snllivan was omitted. I 
lelt that there was something wrong; 
it seemed to mo that there was 
something which I could not realize. I first 
beard of the death of our brother, at Cottage 
Grove, this morning, My informant, however, 
was not sure whether it was ex-Alderman Sul- 
livan or the man whose loss we have met to 
mourn. 1 have not feJt well since. I have actu- 
ally felt wretched all day. I do not know how 
soon some one more of our number may be taken 
olT. He was with us the other night, crackinff his 
jokes and ministering to our enjoyment, and to- 
nio:ht he is dead. 

Mr. President, I endorse the resolutions that 
have been introduced by Alderman Clark. I can- 
not fay an 3" thing more, nor can I fully realize 
that he must appear in this Council no more. 

Aid. Barrett— 1 deeply deplore the loss that we 
have sustained in the demise of Alderman O'Sul- 
livan. I had the pleasure of being acquainted 
with him for, probably, twelve years, and I feel it 
my duty to add my meed of praise to his many 
virtues. As has been remarked by the Aldermen 
present, during the whole course of my acquaint- 
ance with him I never saw him otherwise than 
pleasant and genial. I have seen him on occasions 
when others Tiad their tempera ruffled, and it is 
but simple justice to say that on all those occa- 
sions, and in the heat of controversy, he was al- 
ways in a pleasant mood. I have had some inter- 
course with him, and I always found him a man of 
his word. As has been remarked, with regard to 
the amiability of his disposition, he was all kind- 



ness and charity, so far as I know, I have never 
known him, in the course of my acquaintance, to 
shut his eyes or ears to the complaints of the 
poor. I hope God, in His mei'cy, will give him the 
reward of his good and charitable works. 

Aid. Talcott— I rise, Mr. President, to add my 
endorsement to these resolutions. My first ac- 
quaintance with Alderman O'Sullivau was when 
I came into the Council, nearly four years ago, 
at a time when our body was nearly equally di- 
vided. We had a g^eat many close and hard- 
fought battles, but 1 never saw him thrown otT 
his balance. He was always gentlemanly in de- 
bate, always friendly, always genial ; and I must 
say that I cannot realize that he is gone. It seems 
but an hour since I sat at the table with him, at 
Mr. Kinsley's, takina* sunper. I can say no moro. 

The Alderman resumed his seat, too much af- 
fected to proceed further. 

The resolutions were then unanimously adopted. 

Aid. Knickerbocker — As the minutes are being 
taken in short band, as a mar-v of respect and es- 
teem for the deceased, I move that the remarks of 
His Honor, the Mayor, and the members of the 
Council, be spread upon the records in full, and 
published in the official report. 

Aid. Holden seconded the motion, which was 
passed. 

Aid. Bixby ofllei*ed and moved the adoption of 
the following resolution : 

Besolved, That we recommend that the various 
offices of the City Government be closed to-mor- 
row forenoon, in order that all who may wish to, 
may attend the funeral of Aid. O'Sullivan. 

Adopted unanimously. 

Aldo Clark moved the passage of the following 
resolution : 

Be solved^ That a committee of three members 
of this Council, one from each Division, be ap- 
pointed by the Chair, who with Commissioner 
Gund, of the Board of Police, and Commissioner 
Eose, of the Board of Public Works, shall take 
charge of all necessary arrangements for attend- 
ing the funeral of our deceased brother. 

The motion prevailed, and the resolution was 
passed. 

His Honor, the Mayor, appointed as the commit- 
tee referred to in the resolution, Aldermen Clark, 
RaCTerty and Kann. 

Aid. Knickerbocker moved that the Council do 
now adjourn. 

The motion prevailed and the Council stood ad- 
journed. A. H. BOD MAN,

EAILBOADS. 

Aid. Talcott, of the Committee on Railroads, to 
whom had been referred the petitions of citizens 
of the West Division, asking that a proper ordi- 
nance be parsed rec[uiring the several Horse Rail- 
road Companies to run cars at stated intervals 
during the entire twenty-four hours, submitted a 
report, which, on motion of Aid. Woodard, was 
ordered to be 

Laid over and published. 

The following is the report : 

BEPORT OF COMMITTEE, 

To tJie Mayor OjUd Aldermen of fJie City of Cfiica- 

go, in Common Council assembled : 

Your Committee on Railroads, to whom was re- 
ferred a petition of the citizens of Chicago, ask- 
ing that a proper ordinance be passed requiring 
the several Horse Railroad CompaTiies in the city 
to run cars at stated times all night, or during the 
entire twenty-four hours, having had the same un- 
der advisement, beg leave to report against the 
passasre of such an ordinance, believing as we do, 
that if all the Horse Railroads would have a car 
leave State street at 1'2 o'clock p. m., it would be 
all that the public travel calls for at night, beyond 
the present running lime. But we believe the 
cars shoald start at an earlier hour in the morn- 
ing, say at tialf past five o'clock during the sum- 
mer time, or from March 1st to December 1st. 

There is one great nuisance allowed upon all the 
horse cars, to which we would call the attention of 
the managers, and request its abatement at once — 
we refer to the practice of smoking on the cars. 
Tour committee is not aware that there is anoth- 
er city in the Union, where it is allowed, 
and we believe the railroad companies of this city 
would confer a lasting favor, and also Invoke a 
" God bless them " from a large portion of those 
who use the horse cars daily as a means of transit 



to and from their places of businesR, and for trips 
of pleasure, by immediately prohibiting the prac- 
tice of smoking on the cars, and we would there- 
fore request the various companies to issue such 
an order. All of which is respectfully submitted. 

M. Talcott, 
Samuel Shackfoed. 
Also, 

of the same committee, to whom had been refer- 
red the petition of Munn & Scott for permission 
to lay a railroad track across Mitchell and Dodge

Railroad Company, submitted a report recom- 
mending the passage of an ordinance granting 
them permission to lay down and operate the rail- 
road as prayed for ; which, on motion of Aid. 
Calkins, was ordered to be 
Laid over and published. 
The following is the report and ordinance :

cago in Common Council assembed :

of which is Respectfully submitted,

liaid over and published. 

The following is the report and ordinance as 
presented : 

BEPOBT OP coanrrrrzE. 
To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chicago, 

in Common Council assembled : 

Your Committee on Licenses, to whom was re- 
ferred in February last the question of butchers' 
licences, made their report to the Council on the 
I9th day of the same month, and recommended the 
passage of an ordinance then submitted, which 
they believed was necessary, both lor the vender 
and consumer of meats. 

The Council adopted the first section of the or- 
dinance, which increased the price of butchers' 
licenses from o^e to ten dollars, and rejected the 
remaining sections, which your committee then 
thought and still believe to be of much import- 
ance to our citizens. 

The butchers have been compelled to pay the 
increased price for license recommended by the 
committee, which was based upon the presump- 
tion that they should receive the protection that 
was provided for by three sections of the ordi- 
nance rejected by the Council. 

The main object of your committee in recom- 
mending the increase of the license fee was to 
provide a fund with which to pay competent in- 
spectors for watching the trade, and see that all 



-Oct. 26,] 



butchers complied wilb the law, thus to project 
the honest vender in his biisiness and the con- 
sumer from imposition by dishonest dealers. The 
funds have been secured in the passa<re of the first 
Bection. and we earnestly recommend that tne 
protection be e'iven to both vender and consumer 
which is provided for in the sections of an ordi- 
■nance herewith submitted. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Chas. G. "WicKEr,, 
Egbert Eng:::!.

To His Honor the Mayor and Aldermen of the City

Your Special Committee, to whom was re- 
ferred an ordinance to amend Section 2 of Chapter 
35 of the Eevised Ordinances, entitled "Pounds," 
as, also, petition of numerous citi;^en8, recom- 
mending: the passage of said ordinance, havint; 
had the same under advisement, beg leave, and do 
respectfully report, that we are of the opinion 
that the ordinance, as reported by the Committee 
on Judiciary, should not be passed, for the reason 
that it would seem to work an injustice to those 
settlers living between the Chicago Eiver on the 
east, Morgan etree* tipon the west, Monroe street 
upon the south, and Fulton street upon the north, 
compelling them to keep their cows and cattle shut 
up, whilst those who live outside those limits have 
the right to allow their stock to run at large. 

Your committee have a petition from numerous 
citizens asking that the limits of the ordinance 
now in force be very much extended, thus it is 
that a wide difference of opinion exists amons our 
citizens relative to this much vexed question ; 
and believing that it vnll be better for all, espe- 
cially the poor of this portion of our city, that no 
ordinance of this kind or nature be required or 
enforced, at least for the preRcnt, your commit- 
tee would recommend the passage of the append- 



ing ordinance. All of which is respectfully sub- 
mitted. CHAKLTS C. P. UOLDEJf,
